Anne Lenhart shattered her knee while in Haiti. After she returned to Texas, she checked into Baylor Medical Center and was given a narcotic for the pain. When that ran out, she had a friend drive her to a CVS Pharmacy to refill the prescription, where she was met by a police officer who said she had forged a prescription and arrested her for obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. Police later dropped that charge after speaking to her doctor. Lenhart is now suing CVS.
